Default Re: Great news for parents that have Clemson students

Good news but out of state tuition is already so expensive that you lose track of the incremental increases. Atleast they will finally get back to traditional classroom instruction. My daughter was still 100% online this spring and that is just plain getting hard to justify at OOS tuition rates.

Now the biggest problem isnít even getting discussion. The tremendous growth in the undergrad student population is making it near impossible for students to get into required classes when they are needed to stay on-track. Thatís forcing students into summer semesters and possibly an extra semester to graduate. Thatís a significant increase in cost thatís being forced because Clemson has not addressed the need for more high quality professors. Unfortunately this is forcing the university to use stop gaps like larger class sizes and less qualified instructors. They wonít maintain a high national university rating if President Clements and BOT donít figure out a better solution. This problem saddens me because Clemson had always been a high value education, but thatís being eroded in the pursuit of expansion.
